This blog post follows my journey on the forever C9 program, if you haven’t already read days 1-3 then you might like to read about how I survived 72 hours without food before reading this post.
Day 4 of the C9
The aloe vera has practically lost its taste now and I am so used to drinking it at breakfast that I don’t give it a second thought, which is good as on day 1 I did not think I would survive. I have had a bit of a headache again today and I feel a bit sweaty, which I can only assume is the toxins leaving my body, or at least that’s what I hope it is. I managed a gym session tonight and despite feeling like I hadn’t eaten much I had more than enough energy to complete the circuit. Tonight’s meal was omelette again, I really need to improve my culinary skills!
Day 5 of the C9
No headache today, yippee. In fact I have had an abundance of energy that I have used up with swimming in the morning and zumba in the evening, really hope this pays off at the weigh in tomorrow. I was looking forward to fish and steamed vegetables tonight but in true Terri style I forgot to defrost the fish so I ended up with quorn chicken and a variety of vegetables (some free, some not) all cooked in the wok with a splash of balsamic vinegar, delicious. This programme is definitely helping me to appreciate the taste of vegetables again and to think more about what I eat.
Day 6 of the C9
Weigh in day. Today is the second weigh in of the program and after losing 4.5 lbs in the first three days I am eager to see if I have continued to lose weight. I jump on the scales and am pleased to see I am down another 1.5lbs, bringing it to a total weight loss off 6lbs in 6 days, a number I am more than pleased with. I have lost another couple of inches from around my body and am starting to see a difference so the program is definitely working so far. The rest of the day goes without a hitch, I am used to the routine now and feel my energy levels starting to rise, no more headaches or weird bouts of sweating. As I don’t drink cow’s milk I have been using water in the shakes but today I added coconut milk, it was gorgeous and I would highly recommend using this as it turns the shake into a thick flavoursome cocktail and uses less calories than semi skimmed milk. Tonight’s meal was a salmon stir fry and it was really tasty.
Verdict so far…
Easier than I thought, visible results but I need to improve my culinary skills.
